Her Christmas Gift by Robin Helm

Elizabeth Bennet finds herself snowbound and stranded at Rosings with two rejected, but highly suitable, suitors. Does either one of them have a chance? Will her childhood friend, Meryton’s golden boy, win her affection, or will she accept the master of Pemberley? Will she refuse them both a second time? Her Christmas Gift is beautifully written with tension, emotion, humor, and romance.

The Christmas Matchmaker by Laura Hile

It’s raining; it’s pouring – and what could be better than a little Christmas matchmaking? So says Emma Woodhouse who is unexpectedly stranded at Netherfield Park. Mr. Darcy disagrees, for she has someone else in mind for adorable Elizabeth Bennet. Amid meddling, misunderstanding, and an unwelcome proposal or two, will True Love find a way?

No Better Gift  by Wendi Sotis

On his way to Derbyshire to spend Christmas with his family, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy plans to retrieve an item he left behind during his rushed escape from Netherfield—and the country miss who touched his heart. Finding Meryton practically deserted, he fears the worse. What fate could have fallen upon this once-thriving village in only three weeks? More importantly, was Miss Elizabeth Bennet in danger?

Mistletoe at Thornton Lacey by Barbara Cornthwaite

When Edmund realizes that Fanny is the perfect wife for him, he wants to propose without delay. What better time than at Christmas, as his family and the Price girls visit him at Thornton Lacey? Surely he will find the perfect time to offer his heart and his hand to the lady who has won them.  Who could have believed it would prove to be so difficult?

Blurb: Building contractor William Darcy doesn’t trust women. Elizabeth Bennett, an architectural intern working on his latest project, wants nothing to do with such a rude man. Because of a magical blessing inherited from an ancestor
of a similar name, Elizabeth begins to doubt her sanity when her cell phone receives pictures predicting future events. After Elizabeth uses the photos to save
William’s sister, the wall between them begins to crumble.

When William witnesses Elizabeth viewing a series of prophetic photos, he becomes involved, as well.

Will their shared experiences become the foundation of love?

Foundation of Love is a sweet, Jane Austen-inspired romance with a bit of magic / paranormal. A contemporary sequel to The Gypsy Blessing, which takes place in Regency England, it can also stand alone.

Foundation of Love contains no graphic love scenes.

New story! The Gypsy Blessing Chapter 1

I’m posting the first draft of a new story,

The Gypsy Blessing

at BeyondAusten.com!

Please stop by and take a look. Here is the blurb:

Blurb: Whilst taking a solitary ramble on her father’s estate, Elizabeth Bennet finds an injured woman, cares for her, and helps her return to her gypsy camp. Impressed that a gentlewoman would come to his wife’s aid, the king of the gypsies promises that she will find happiness through his wife’s special blessing. Forgetting the incident, Elizabeth thinks it merely odd when she begins to receive drawings in the mail with no return address—until she begins to recognize the scenes depicted in the sketches as they become true events in her life.
